Woman Arrested Following Drug Seizure in Tipperary

Yesterday, Tipperary Gardaí arrested a woman and seized an estimated €25,000 worth of drugs.

Drugs seized are suspected to be alprazolam pills packed in blister packs branded ‘Ksalol’. These suspected drugs will now be sent for analysis.

Alprazolam works by enhancing the activity of certain neurotransmitters in the brain. This medicine can cause birth defects or life-threatening withdrawal symptoms in pregnant women and may not be distributed by a licensed pharmacy. Fatal side effects can occur if alprazolam is taken with alcohol, opioid medicine, or other drugs that cause drowsiness or the slowing down of breathing.

The woman, understood to be aged in her 30’s, was arrested at the scene and detained at Clonmel Garda Station. She has since been released and a file will be prepared for the DPP.

This seizure was made shortly after 3:00pm when Gardaí from the Clonmel District Drugs Unit and Tipperary Divisional Drugs Unit carried out a planned search of a house in the Carrickbeg area of Carrick on Suir, Co. Tipperary.
